Page Icon Rons Data Edit - Professional CSV Editor

Professional CSV file editor for Windows. A modern tabular text editor that combines elegance, power and ease of use.

Rons Data Edit is a powerful new modern CSV file editor for Windows. It can open any format of separated text (CSV, TSV etc.), and allows total control over their content and structure. Built from ground up to present both application control and data clearly, it provides the ideal data editing environment.

Whatever your needs, this is the perfect application for anyone who works with tabular text files.

Rons Data Edit has not forgotten it is a text editor. While Excel is a state-of-the-art spreadsheet application, using it to edit CSV files can be problematic. Rons Data Edit will not try and 'help' with your data as Excel does, but instead provides a range of tools to work with the actual text data.

For anyone who regularly works with CSV files, Rons Data Edit will pay for itself in days . . . even sooner if you use the free version ;-).

Clear Control, Elegant Data

The application is presented in a clean manner, with quickly discoverable capabilities. Simple for first time customers, more advanced options open in logically ordered panels, and experimentation is safe with full undo/redo.

The data grid provides in cell editing and a clear layout that can be customized with features like auto sizing columns, column/row freeze and multi-line cells. Columns can be hidden and moved, and layouts saved for later use.

Page per Row presents rows in a form layout.

It's All About Text (opens anything)

Profiles are used to create sets of delimiters that can be associated with file extensions, and/or copy/paste formats so any format of separated text (e.g. CSV, TSV, PSV, TAB, etc.) can be edited.

Auto-detect can be enabled to automatically detect delimiters and combine with Profiles for smooth file opening.

Full text encoding supported, including Utf-7, Utf-8, Utf-16 and Utf-32, with automatic detection.

Discover the Power

Cells contents can be edited inline or in a separate editing panel for long/multiline cells.

Next to the standard editing options, panels can be opened containing the Toolbox, Columns Tools, Row Tools and Cell Tools. These contain features like split/merge rows and columns, remove duplicates/empty, and fill to name a few.

Wherever possible data can be used in its 'real' format, e.g. sorting/filtering by numerical value, and multi-national support is applied throughout.

Loads of Ways to get Data IN

Aside from being able to open any delimited text file, data can be imported from clipboard, file and the web in any separated format, JSON, XML, HTML and token.

Imported data can be appended or joined on one or more row keys.

Loads of Ways to get Data OUT

Of course data can also be exported to a file or the clipboard in any separated format, JSON, XML, HTML and token.

A file, view or all open documents can be exported to Excel directly.

Slice and Dice

Views can be created, and saved, from the main document that provide different insights:

  • Quick filter and Filter to find or group rows.
  • Duplicate Rows to find rows with matching values in one or more columns.
  • Construct where customers build a report based on their own criterion.

For customers who wish to view summaries of their data, a Data Summary is available for quick data analysis, as well as a Data Graph to visualize data with line charts, bar charts and pie graphs.


Sets of editing rules, called Cleaners (shared with Rons Data Stream - free Lite version available) can also be run in Rons Data Edit to execute multiple editing actions on a document in one go.

Cleaners are partly made from the same 'rules' that are used in the Toolbox, but also include row and column operations.

I really like the new design. Rons CSV Editor was invaluable for my work before, there’s nothing else out there that comes close as far as I can tell and, from what I can tell in the couple of weeks since I’ve upgraded to it, Rons Data Edit seems to be just as reliable, faster and more capable.
